Re: The Burner's Guide To Leaving No Trace

this may be covered elsewhere, and I apologise that I can't find it if so. I just got asked by someone:

If it's a leave no trace event, why do you burn stuff? doesn't that leave a trace of dioxins and such in the air? greenhouse gases, etc.

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

Well folks, my last chance is tonight, should Canada Post decide to grace my door step with two lovely tickets home. I leave tomorrow morning. (Thankfully, there are folks left behind who will mail them to me on a point in my travels.) If they're not here tonight, I'm going to give it until August 1...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

No love here yet (Yellowknife). Friday's the last possible day for it to get here before I leave on my trip... thankfully it can be re-mailed to me on my travels, but blergh. Just want it in my hand. but hearing people in Calgary got theirs recently is a decent sign it might show up in the next day ...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

I received my email on July 3rd. Well aware of the mountain of busywork to get even the tickets into the correct envelopes and to the post office, I haven't worried these last three weeks. But it's Priority Mail, right? Last night I checked on the routing number Track and Confirm function. This mor...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

No tracking number -- ah well. Canada Post knows very specifically where I am at what time due to mail forwarding, etc. I am going to go visit my local CP office tomorrow to change the dates on my forwarding slightly (though I did give an updated address to BM ticketing) just to be extra cautious of...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

still no shipping notification, lottery, Canada. Canada seems to be the (un)magical part. I haven't heard of a Canadian getting a shipping notification yet. Perhaps they're all in the mail anyhow. That'd be grand :)

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

and the fact that tons of people are still waiting makes me breathe easier, but not totally. and I'll wait until the end of this week to really start freaking out.

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

My guess is that all the Canadian tickets, being sent by a different courier from the others, are being set aside to be put into a single batch and will thus go out at the end. USPS Global Express Mail isn't a courier, it's a postal service... Canada Post picks it up on this side of the border... I...

Re: Did you get a STEP Ticket?

my friend that I'm traveling with went back and forth on whether she was coming at all. decided no. then a week later, got the weirdo email you all seem to be discussing. got REALLY bummed because she decided it was a sign that she should go. a few days pass and she clicks on the link and is able to...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

Me, and a couple buddies (3 pairs of xmas presales,) are still patiently waiting in Calgary for an email notification and tracking number. I have a feeling Canadian orders will go out last. I've asked around; I can't find a single Canuck who has received a shipping email or tix. Balls. Also, slight...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

I also received an email from the ticketing folks after I explained my sitch, and they kindly suggested Will Call, but said do it soon as I'm in the queue to mail out and they're moving through them pretty quickly. If that makes anyone else feel better, it does for me. and I have mail forwarding to ...

I got $320 level tickets; no tickets/shipping email yet... it's already July 9, and I move in about 2 weeks. :( I know whining won't make them come any faster, I'm just grumpy that I may have to fork out $60 for mail forwarding/address change with Canada Post. I've done this just because, and it's ...

Re: Have not received tickets yet. Have you?

Being that annoying person will not get your tickets mailed out any faster. You may want to consider making arrangements to have someone pick up your mail (or pick up mail at the forwarded/new location). Yes. I'm on the road with no fixed address after the end of this month. I am hoping I can switc...

So I'm moving August 1. No ticket shipping email yet. I'm in Canada. Eeek. I hope they make it... I am in the same situation (except not just moving, storing all my stuff and will be on the road for 5 weeks including the Burn) and thinking of calling the ticket folks tomorrow. I don't want to be th...
